Basic Roller Ball Recipe

I've had several customers ask me HOW to make their own roller ball roll-on with our amazing Gemstone Rollers

Gemstone Roller
Carrier Oil
Essential Oil

1) Chose your favorite roller; mine is the Amethyst roller

2) Fill 3/4 full of Carrier Oil; I like Argan Oil which is perfect for your skin

3) Start with 10 Essential Oil drops, put thumb over opening and shake well.  Take a quick sniff.  If it's not strong enough add a few drops more. 

YOU can make it to YOUR preference!!  Perfume roller or stress relief or insect control.

Happy Essential Oil experimenting!!

Elderberry Syrup Recipe


If you are interested in adding elderberry to your diet for its immune system boosting properties, a teaspoon of elderberry syrup per day is a conservative recommended daily serving. ... If you are fighting cold and flu symptoms, a conservative recommendation is to take up to 4 teaspoons per day until symptoms subside. I usually use 2 teaspoons in the morning and 2 more in the evening.

Elderberry Syrup Recipe

This elderberry syrup is thought to be a natural remedy for cold and flu symptoms. When taken within 48 hours of symptoms, it's been shown to reduce the duration of symptoms by up to 4 days. I like to sweeten it with honey, which is rich in antioxidants and has been shown to help suppress coughing in children. 

1/2 c dried elderberries (2.5oz of dried)
2 cups water
1 tablespoon fresh ginger, minced (optional)
1 tablespoon turmeric (optional)
1/2 cup honey, maple syrup, stevia syrup or date sugar

Combine the elderberries, water, turmeric and ginger in a small saucepan over high heat and bring the mixture to a boil. Lower the heat and allow the mixture to simmer until the water has been reduced by half, about 45 minutes.

While boiling/reducing start preparing clean bowl with fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth over colander. When syrup has reduced by half; pour carefully into bowl. Use the back of a spoon to press on the berries in the strainer, to extract all of the juice, then discard the pulp left in the strainer. 

Let the elderberry juice cool to room temperature, so that the heat doesn't harm the nutrients in the honey, then stir in the honey. Use a whisk to incorporate it smoothly, then transfer the syrup into a sealed glass jar that you can store in the fridge. 
Your syrup should keep well for at least two weeks when stored in the fridge, so if you don't think you'll use it all before then, feel free to freeze it until you're ready to use more.  

Notes:
  • If you choose to omit the sweetener, you’ll just be left with elderberry juice, which will spoil much more quickly in the fridge. You can freeze it in ice cube trays, however, for longer shelf life.

Floral Water Recipe

We've been asked what type of water can be used in our Seaweed Detox Mask, Activated Charcoal or any of our Clay's when making your own masks.  

We have a simple recipe:

1 cup distilled water
1/2 cup (1/2oz) flowers 
        (rose, lavender, amla berry, etc)

Boils or microwave water, pour over herbs.  Let steep about 15 minutes, strain then cool before use.  You can store in back of fridge between uses or do what I do, pour and freeze in ice cube tray.  I keep in a small ziploc baggie in freezer and pull one out when I'm ready for SPA night.

You can add Essential oils (we offer 1ml and 5ml for experimenting) to enhance your experience.

Herbs are also wonderful ways to enhance your experience!  Each herb has it's own properties.  We offer lots of choices for the herbs that works best for you! You can check out our Articles Section for ideas and suggestions.

Homemade Natural Bug Spray Recipe


3 1/2 ounces (which is basically 1/3 cup) of Witch Hazel or cheap Vodka
1/2 teaspoon Lemongrass Oil
1/2 teaspoon Lemon Eucalyptus Oil
1/2 teaspoon Citronella Oil
Combine all ingredients in a small four-once spray bottle you can get at dollar store.
When you use it, be sure to shake the bottle contents before spraying as the oils separates from the witch hazel.

* We like using only Lemon Eucalyptus Oil because it works better.  I know of a lady who uses Lavender and Peppermint, these haven't worked for me.  The FDA recommends Lemon Eucalyptus Oil.

We offer our Insect Repellent Starter Kit for your convenience!

It is also tightening and firming the skin which gives the skin an anti-aging benefit, leaving it with a more youthful look. Other ailments that Dead Sea Mud is able to help alleviate are dry skin, rheumatism, arthritis, muscle aches and stiffness and joint inflammation.

Dead Sea Mud can also be applied to the scalp in order to strengthen hair roots, enhance new hair growth and help prevent hair loss.

The minerals which are present in the mud are all natural minerals which your skin needs every day. By using Dead Sea mud, or a mud mask, you are basically feeding your skin these essential minerals. Minerals such as potassium, magnesium, sodium, bromine and calcium are all needed by your skin to help maintain the right moisture levels and hydration.

Another very powerful effect of using Dead Sea mud is the fact that as it dries, it pulls out any toxins that may be present in your skin cells from your everyday diet. This leaves the skin completely clean, refreshed and pure on top of infusing it with the minerals.

Toe Nail Fungus

Tea Tree Oil - I use this on my husband’s toes.  He has horrible toenail fungus. My mother had it also and she got a prescription medication.  Mum said she took TWO pills and wound up in the EMERGENCY ROOM!  She had such a frightening reaction to the medication.  I remembered tea tree oil. I used it on hubby (he wears steel-toed boots 6 days a week for work!) and it worked for him and her.

This worked for us and here's how we used it:

Make sure you can put your feet up for a while. Use my Cleansing Foot Soak, carefully dry feet. Place feet up.  Carefully pull back toenail and place ONE DROP of oil under each infected toe.

Do this everyday for two weeks.  You will start to see an improvement after about 10 days.

The 3rd week move to every other day, the 4th week every 3rd day.

Now I use it twice a week on his toes and his nails are now white with pink beds!
